I'm Going To The World Series!!!!!!

First time ever. I'd been trying the automated line all morning, and even the tickets they supposedly had were "not available." But those were $250 and up anyway. Finally around 12:30, they had bleachers. Which are $125 each. I tried for 3, no go. Two, nothin'. Tried a single...and got it! FRONT ROW! At this point, I wanted to secure the ticket, as opposed to trying for two more separate singles, just because you never know if you'll somehow lose the one you had for whatever reason. So after sweating out the actual acquiring of the ticket, I called right back and got another single, then started over with another game (the same game) and got yet another single for a total of three between the two orders. Again, sweated through "the process," got my second confirmation number, and I was gold. So they're not together but they're all very good seats. WORLD SERIES!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!! !!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! !!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

Keep trying that line, people. Good luck.

Speaking of jumping...check out Napoli and Ross in this video, at about the 2:10 mark.

They look like little-leaguers. I LOVE IT!!

Yeah that was great.

But seeing the grand slam again, now I'm wondering abut something else--who got the ball?? The original and one replay show ball reaching crowd but it's cut off before we see. There's a group of four guys, and as soon as the ball lands a row in front of them and a little to their left, they start celebrating--meanwhile, the ball bounces up, hits bottom of sign, and plunks right down behind them. But none of them seems to notice! Even the guy to their left, who's watching the ball, seems to give up on it after it lands in their row, going for a high five from the row above. The key may be the person in the green jacket, who is one row up, and follows the ball all the way, almost pointing down behind the four guys. I'm guessing it just lands at their feet and eventually they notice and one grabs it, BUT, it could have hit one of their stools and bounced left or right, OR, it stayed by their feet, but an observant fan from down their row runs over and picks it up.
Here is the guy who got the ball!
Wait, that's the same link. But guess what? I just found out that the guy who got it is someone I know! Will do a post about it.
Crap, that's what I get for trying to do it quickly while the football game is on.
Congrats, Jere! Bring on the Redbirds!
So which game is it? Could it be a clinching game, something the Sox have done at Fenway only twice (1912 and 1918)?

Q, thanks.
A, I'll just say I'm guaranteed to see a game.
